With a budget of $24, I hit the thrift stores for a variety of dishes that I could use to package baked goods and offer as The Gift of Thrift. As you can see, I've flagged my discoveries with Post-Its so I'll remember which piece goes to which recipient. (As you can see, I came in WAY under budget!)
I baked up cinnamon stars, peanut clusters, peanut butter pinwheels and gumdrop bars -- all recipes from vintage cookbooks -- and placed them in this pretty mosaic dish found at Goodwill for about $2.
After covering my goodies in wax paper, I wrapped them in a clean, paper grocery bag and tied the whole thing up in a gingham ribbon I found at an estate sale in Kansas City!
The Gift of Thrift!
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,
The Elegant Thrifter
